Currently, she serves as executive producer and lead of Freeform’s "black-ish" spinoff series, "grown-ish." She also executive produces and stars in Meta’s new interview show, "Yara Shahidi’s Day Off," where she joins her celebrity peers and gets a glimpse into their lives through a variety of experiences that reflect their authentic interests outside of their fame.

Inspired by her extensive work with President and First Lady Obama, Shahidi founded Eighteen x 18, now called WeVoteNext, to shine a light on Gen Z and BIPOC inclusion in the political process.
